Development of a Conceptual Framework toward an Integrated Transportation System (Continued)

As a continuing effort documented in the first phase project UMAR19-13, this research focuses on the design of a prototype application under the framework toward an Integrated Transportation System. More specifically, this research aims at improving safety at intersections using wireless technology. In order to warn drivers of on-coming traffic, a vehicular ad-hoc network acts as a safeguard using various types of equipment to inform drivers of a possible accident. Two devices, one known as On-Board Equipment (OBE), and the other as Road-Side Equipment (RSE), act as the chief components in a system that activate warning lights based on conditions of on-coming traffic on minor approaches.
